 W.P.(C)1875 at Delhi High Court
The captioned W.P.(C) 1875 was listed on 6.2.2014. Please Let us know the developments took place in the case.
 
Comment: Dear Shri Tandon,

You must have overlooked the page "Current Activities" in this website, where we have uploaded the latest news of the court case on 6th Feb itself. The next date for hearing by the Delhi High Court Div Bench, has been fixed for 18th March, 2014. This was after our counsel argued that a lot of delay had already taken place and pensioners were dying. Otherwise the hearing would have taken place in April, 2014.

Comment: Dear Mr. Mudi,

Welcome to our website. We presume that you are drawing pension now from a Branch in Durgapur. In that case. You can avail of medical facilities from any Dispensary of the Bank in W. Bengal. If not, we suggest that you transfer your pension from Patna Circle by applying to their PPG Deptt. Please also take the membership of our Association in order to remain well informed.

 no delivery by the pensioners' fedaration/association
I have received your bulletin no-1/8 dt nov/dec 2013 and I am totally disappointed as the pensioners' fedaration/association have not been able to deliver a single benefit to the pensioners. The bulletin only advises about the case at high court and some meetings at different places. I feel that the periodical meetings are necessary to avoid loneliness and to keep fit physically and mentally. The bulletin has reached my home at a time after the last date for submission of nomination papers papers. So the same faces will continue in the governing body inspite of their attaining much higher age and for no delivery over the years. This is most unfortunate. Even during our service life I saw most of such leaders were in the helm of affairs continuously in spite of no performance. You will agree that almost all the people enroll for the members after 60 years of age and if the leadership continues for a number of terms thereafter, we cannot expect much from them. So I am in favour of changing the bye-laws that nobody can be a governing body member after two terms; that means he cannot contest and you know how election is held by raising hands in the ADM. Therefore attending Federation meeting at different places of India with no delivery of benefits to the old members is construed as availing of erstwhile leave fare concession of the bank. Kindly think seriously in the matter. I don't blame you as the two serving unions are not able to deliver to the members upto the expectations as developments come up in newspapers. Trade unions are losing their barganing power in different industries and in turn losing the faith of the members/workers and there cannot be any exception for pensioners' associations. But change of faces in leadership at certain intervals making rooms for newly retired people specially who were not leaders os associations during service life otherwise 'aaisai chalta rohega'.
 
Comment: Dear Sabyasachi,

We would appreciate if you refer to yourself as not an ex DGM, but as a pensioner, like the rest of us. This is the difference between the pensioners' Association and the cadre based Associations that you have referred to in your message. Here all of us are equal, and our only identity is that we are pensioners.
We do not agree with your observations about the activities and achievements of our Association/Federation, or its leaders. It is because of years of painstaking efforts of such pensioners, that the Association and Federation has grown in stature. You may or may not be aware that it was because of the court case fought by our Federation that the erstwhile absurd pension ceilings of Rs 1000/Rs 600 were discontinued and Family Pension introduced in our bank. Since 1989, the Association and Federation has made remarkable efforts in improvement of medical benefits, settlement of anomalies and aberrations through structured meetings at Corporate Centre level, LHO level and even ZO level. Pensioners' meets are sponsored by the Bank management. Even Workshops for pensioners are sponsored by the Bank. We have been provided with office space and infrastructure everywhere. Yet, we are not a trade union which can compel the bank to yield to our demands through agitations and strikes. This is no mean achievement.
If you wish to associate yourself actively with our association, you are welcome to do so, as any voluntary effort by pensioners helps it to grow. Bringing about changes in the bye laws is also possible through amendment resolutions. For that too, active involvement is first needed.
It is surprising that you have not found anything commendable about the Association, not even this website which you have used to voice your views. Pensioners from all over the country have however appreciated our humble efforts and encouraged us. We urge upon you to come forward and help us to improve our functioning, instead of criticizing from a distance.

My question is why are the bank's legal officer are not able to distinguish between the employees who sough V.R. offed by the bank as a special scheme and who were adjudged at par with those employes who normally retire after achieving sixty years of age - from those employees who seek V.R. under the prevailing service rules who would then get differentiated pension. This is what has to be resolved by the Hon'ble courts.

 Views regarding pension payment.
I need to inform you that all retirees should get equel status regarding pension payment.

For example:-

a)Existing basic must be 50% for all pensioners'.wef 1st Nov, 2007.

b)Pensioners'must get hike whenever new wage negotiation done.(As good as Central Govt.employees)

I think above 2(two) points must not ignore
then we are to loose our morality as well as intelligence as a whole.
 
Comment: Dear Shri Bhattacharjee,

Welcome to our website. You have correctly voiced two demands. The 50% pension for all, is the main relief sought in our case now pending at Delhi High Court Div Bench, the next date of hearing being 6th Feb, 2014. The second demand is one which is being voiced by pensioners in the entire banking industry. There are two other demands which are common to all pensioners in the banking industry. 30% Family Pension for all, and 100% Dearness Relief neutralization at quarterly intervals for all pensioners.

 payment of medical bills
Payment of Medical bills under REMBS are being made abnormally late, sometimes after more than two months. This is resulting in accumulation of bills for more than three months. Kind interference solicited. My bills are sanctioned at HR Deptt, Howrah RBO.
 
Comment: Dear Arun,

The problem is genuine and acute because of non availability of Medical Officer at Howrah Zonal Office. A stop gap arrangement has been made possible through our persuasion, and one Doctor is being deputed partially to cater to this need. We are hopeful that the big backlog will get cleared soon.

Good Morning and a Happy New Year

Pension issues in SBI–Let delay not diminish the expectations:

With each day passing, solutions to pension issues in State Bank of India are getting delayed abnormally with the result that the patience of the retiree pensioners stands awe fully over brimmed, it’s rather on a collapsing point. Lot many messages are reaching this blog as from the retiree pensioners every day manifesting their pains caused to them on account of delay in sorting out the pension related issues. They feel exhausted and frustrated too, but the moot question is what could it be to transpire if they lay down their efforts and hopes. This shall be a disaster. I earnestly appeal to all the retirees not to abandon their patience, nor should they feel disheartened in any manner. They have to remember that whatever are the endeavours made on this count shall not go a waste and are sure to elicit some tangible outcome some day; let us wish that this occurs soonest possible.

 Additional Housing Loan
Sir I was granted additional housing loan of Rs.3,07,000/- in the year 1998. The loan installment was fixed for Rs.2000/- per month and it was being recovered from my salary till the date of my retirement from bank’s services on 31.07.2008. At the time of my retirement, I requested the bank to continue the housing loan account when the loan outstanding was about Rs.3.55 lac.
2. During a period of 53 months (from August,2009 to December,2012) I deposited a sum of Rs.1,10,000/- in my loan account which was more than the recovery from the monthly installment. But in the month of December,2012 when Charbagh, Lucknow branch stopped transaction in my PENSION ACCOUNT No. 2002398033 putting me in great financial and mental stress, I took up the matter with Charbagh branch and Regional Manager R-V Zonal Office, Lucknow who enhanced the loan installment to Rs.4,450/- pm on the plea that as per the housing loan scheme the remaining period is only four years to repay the loan. Accordingly, a sum of Rs.4,450/- is being recovered from 27.12.2012 till date from my above pension account and a sum of Rs.48,950/- has been recovered.
3. Despite the above revised repayment installment of Rs.4,450/- which is being recovered from my pension account, the Charbagh branch surprisingly again noted a lien of Rs.1,00,000/- on 17.12.2013 to my pension account depriving me to withdraw from my pension account. This has put to me in great financial and mental stress.
4. Sir I want to know what was the loan period for the additional housing loan scheme. Was it 20 years? Can a lien may be noted in PENSION ACCOUNT.
Kindly help me.
With regards.

Hatibagan, Calcutta Pharmacy is closed for the last three months. Despite efforts by the local unit and the concerned Branch Manager, no efforts seem to have been taken by neither the Pensioners' Association nor by the LHO to reopen it.Poor family pensioners are not getting medicines and medicines worth Rs.lakhs in stock are getting time barred. Would you please look into the matter?
 
Comment: Dear Ashok,

You are right about the closure of the Dispensary. You are however, not right about the Pensioners' Association not making any effort for reopening it. The reason for closure, viz non availability of a Pharmacist was sought to be resolved by the Association and the Bank, by locally recruiting a Pharmacist. But it transpired that the Doctor was a part time one, who was not aurhorised to make any recruitment. The matter has been discussed at Z.O. and LHO level, and also referred to Corporate Centre. Please bear with the delay, which is not because of the Association's inaction, but despite its constant efforts.

Will this lead to despair and possible depression considering most of us have attained the age of the 'hills'?Next, I will dwell on the role of the 7th.BPs in helping out Mr.Salil Ghosh at the subsequent stages and at the appropriate time,if called for,with even nominal gestures.Let us wait and see what unfolds.Sujoy Ghosh
 
Comment: Dear Sujoy,

We share your optimism tempered by cynicism on the prospect of court cases. We have no option but to move ahead and persevere. Please keep writing.

Mr. Sujoy Gosh,

Had you been not working out replies to our persistent question we would have been utterly in despair. Thanks to your dedication for pensioners cause.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Sharma,

Sujoy is a pensioner who had been a genuine HRD man during his tenure in the Bank. No wonder, he reflects our concern over the issues concerning pensioners.

 Calcutta High Court case-7th.BP
Mr.Rohit Sharma-16.12.2013.At this stage an order in favour of Mr.Salil Ghosh is not in the frame,but one cannot cut short a judicial process.We are lucky that the Bank/UOI have appealed to a division bench of two judges headed by the CJ.In the cases of Madras/Kerala HCs the single judge orders were not specific,cogent nor a clear direction was given and were languishing and now stand transferred to the Supreme court and are probably slated for the 9th.January 2014 or so.If,and as and when this case is taken up at Calcutta HC an order in favour of Mr.Salil Ghosh is a very distinct possibility but there is always a possibility of the Bank/UOI appealing at the SC,in which case all the cases may be clubbed together in which case I would like to feel as if a bench of five judges(albeit at three HCs)have given similar orders in favour of the 7th.BPs.Thus an order at the Supreme Court in favour of the 7th.BPs cannot be totally ruled out.But we will have to live out the full length of the Indian judicial process as is prevailing and live to avail the fruits of the final order in our favour.Bear with the delay and live with hope.Till then enjoy the winter and Merry Christmas to all.Sujoy Ghosh
 
Comment: Dear Sujoy,

Thanks once again for sharing your thoughts. You have declared yourself to be an eternal optimist. Why then is there a trace of cynicism in your message ? Festive greetings to you.

 Pensioners' Case at Calcutta H.C,
How far in your personal opinion can you judge that this case filed by Mr. Salil Ghosh will result into victory for all of us?
The single Judge has already given her judgment in favour of Mr. Salil Ghosh then why is that the Bank is still trying to dissipate such judgement ? Is the Bank management still not left its culture of exploitation and demeaning the integrity its own pensioner's whose right they know are true?
 
Comment: Dear Mr Sharma,

Are you not expecting too much from the Bank management ? Without justifying their strategies and tactics, let us also try to understand their own compulsions, which are linked with the Govt's compulsions. We shall have to overcome these obstacles, through our perseverance and solidarity.

 Working together
Mr.Anil K Saxena-29.11.2013.Nice quote but not an appropriate one.Milton wrote that sonnet when he was 100% visually disabled and did not bemoan his fate but continued his encouragement for mankind.Not being members of the PAs may be for varied reasons.One of which could be disillusionment with the Unions when in service so there could be a lack of confidence in the PAs.But, be that as it may,we are now looking forward to the court cases.The 7th.BPs for their's and the rest for the Federation case.After all, it is the 7th.BPs who have been discriminated against(as also the 5th.and 6th.)and their only solace is the court cases,having been sold out by the the then active Unions some of whom are now active in the PAs and disenchantments cannot be ruled out.Anyway let us look forward.Sujoy Ghosh
